After the death of Josep Suñol, a commission was created, called the Committee of Employees, to manage the club and ensure that nobody could take it over during the Civil War
As Barça had, in theory, fallen into the hands of the workers, the first decision taken was to ‘confiscate’ the club and Les Corts stadium by forwarding them to the CNT-FAYA union. The commission was made up of five people of unquestionable reputation that had always worked at the service of Fútbol Club Barcelona: Pere Ballarín, Manuel Bassols, Àngel Sánchez, general secretary Rossend Calvet and masseur Àngel Mur. In November 1937, in an extremely cunning move instigated by Calvet, three directors were added that had formed part of the board under Sunyol: Francesc Xavier Casals, Agustí Bo and Paulí Carbonell. The former took charge of financial matters, a particularly difficult task considering the club’s funds were almost nonexistent, and in theory he took on the role of provisional president. It was this commission that maintained Fútbol Club Barcelona until the end of the Civil War and during its time in office, Barça won one Catalan Championship, one Mediterranean league and one Catalan League.
